    MobHunting adds a new level of fun to hunting monsters, animals or opponents. Now you can get money or even dead players skull from kills, get bonuses for skilled and creative kills, and get special achievements!

    Video tutorial
    @BillyCooldude has made this nice tutorial for me

    But there is SO much more to discover in this plugin!


    To use MobHunting, all you need is Vault or Reserve and a compatible economy plugin (f.ex. BagOfGold or Essentials) ProtocolLib is an option, but is strongly recommended, because the user experience is improved. If you want to use the BagOfGold as money you must install BagOfGold.

    There are more than 20 achievements to get. So get hunting.

    At any time your achievements can be viewed with /mobhunt kills or /mobhunt achievements. /mobhunt by default has an alias /mh so you can use /mh kills for ease of use.

    The player can now start his Skull Collection and get new skulls, when he kills new Mobs.
    Each time a player kills a Mob there is a chance that a command is run and the player gets a reward. The standard setup is giving skulls once in while. This can be configured in config.yml.

    As default the money reward will be dropped on the ground as a Bag of gold, but you can also choose to drop the money reward as a normal Minecraft Item, The killers head or the killed mobs head, or your can disable the drop feature and let the player have the money directly in his pocket.

    Disabling/Enabling MobHunting

    Sometimes you don't want players to get money from killing monsters. You might have a special games world, or want it to be rank based

    If you want to disable MobHunting in one or more worlds, you just need to put the worlds names into the 'disabled-in-worlds' list in the configuration file.

    disabled-in-worlds: [games,world_nether]

    NEW Feature: You can add regions in disabled worlds and set the Worldguard custom flag 'MobHunting allow', to enable MobHunting in a limited area in the world. OR you can disable Mobhunting in a worldguard region with the custom flag 'MobHunting deny'.

    /mh region peaceful_area mobhunting deny

    If you want to disable MobHunting per player or per rank, you can use the permission:


    which every player has by default

    A special thanks to Schmoller for his initial work on this plugin. Schmoller decided to stop working on this plugin in the old days of Minecraft 1.7, and I decided to update the plugin for SpigotMC 1.8. I have changed almost eveything, but some part of the code is still made by Schmoller.

    Version: 8.0.4
    I would give it 6 stars if the plugin read my mind and tweaked the configs!! one the best plugins i have ever used. Sure it can cause a few issues, mostly i found that was because it is so configurable - i mucked things up not the coding. all in all one excellent effort My only recommendation is make this a premium resource...You know your worth it.
  5. Oathkeeper
    Version: 8.0.2
    Excited to see LevelledMobs compat in the future if it's in the cards! I'm in the same boat as Lokka; non-developers have zero concept of what time and effort it takes to maintain a plugin, even a premium one. To do it for free, for more than six years of development, is dedication, time, and money invested that few would be willing to absorb.

    Focus on real life first then get back to your passion when you're at your peak! GL!~

    Hey Roco,

    As a fellow developer I have noticed that so many ignorant people have decided to take a dump inside this plugin's review section. I feel pretty bad after reading how poorly people have treated you below. I apologise that you have to deal with it.

    I don't actually use MobHunting (as I don't have enough time to run a MC server anymore), but I'm sure it's not worthy of these 1-star ratings.

    I find it justified that you prefer servers enable bStats metrics. Such a small thing to ask for by developing this plugin for free.

    Something hilarious is the guy that asked you for help whilst giving a three-star. Can't be more of an asshole.

    Leaving this in this section rather than in a PM so perhaps future reviewers can reconsider.

    All the best,

      Hi Lokka30.

      Thank you very much! People don't know how much time it can take to develop a plugin like this and if they had to pay for the time I use on this it would be an VERY expensive plugin.

      I have been "away" for almost a year and I undestand why people are annoyed about that, but giving me a bad review does not make me want to help them. A nice review and nice comments in the forums is what want me to help. In fact it was only because SlimeDog almost begged me to come back, that I decided to give the upgrade to Java16 and MC 1.17.x a shot and now I have released a couple of versions and solved some bugs and I feel i have the energy to continue the work.

      Kind regards

    47k+ DL's... Bruh...

    LEOcab is 100% on the money, THIS is an EPIC plugin, feature rich (and if you look at the source, OMG... REAL love went into this <3)

    Show some back people!! WTF??
    Do you know what REVIEW means??

    Heres one to get you all in the right mindset:-

    - This plugin for it features is EPIC, 5*****s EZ!
    - FULL Setup is complex, but 5* for out of the box "working"
    - UNLIMITED mob management, +vanilla hooking - GG! <3
    - API is EPIC, not one failed call - GG! <3
    - Installation - drag, drop -- job done <3
    - Cmd Use, 5* nothing you cant do in game you dont have to!
    - help (/mh help) will give you clear and easy to read examples

    This is one HELL of a plugin!
    This is a LOT of love into MC intergration and modding

    Do not let the fools that can only type in the first box they find knock you back, this is a stunning bit of coding!

    **To the fools**
    # R E V I E W -
    "support" has more letters in it, and CLEARLY gave his discord?!
    ----> WITH access to his GIT!!

    Once again, Thank you RocoLoco <3 (If you ever need anything, hit me up, IRL, Discord... nothing and no problem is to big to solve my friend, pm me on here for my discord, email and server details)

    Thank you RocoLoco <3
    Thank You!

      Thank you Aussie P3ach :-) I appreciate the support. Its very easy to complain about something, but most people does not know how much time a developer has to spend to make things work. This one has been hard to solve for many reasons, but I think I succeded now.

      MC 1.17 support is now added! :-)

    Version: 7.5.7
    Shame on y'all using this plugin god knows how long then the second it breaks due to update y'all come in here with y'all 1-star stamps taking massive dumps on a plugin you use and probably love despite its flaws

    The dev posted a message at the top of the page saying how IRL has taken over and he can't do squat, yet if you check the dev builds page there are 2 failed builds from YESTERDAY. So despite whatever he's got going on in his life he's still finding the time to work on a 1.17 build for us

    1-stars won't make the dude work any faster, if anything I'm sure it's pretty demotivational

    @Rocologo on behalf of all the players on my server, thank you for this plugin!!!!

      Thank you LEOcab, yes I have actually been trying to make at a MC 1.17 version, but the change to Java 16, gives me big troubles. Shading does not work like it used to and I don't know how to solve this :-(

    Version: 7.5.7
    Such an awesome plugin but sadly abandoned. Yet the developer still asks for donations?
    1. Rocologo
      Author's Response
      I don't develop on my two plugins to get donations. I do it because its a kind of hobby. I have been off for a year. I have a life too and it has nothing to do with Minecraft or development.

      If some one whats to buy me a beer or something its nice and I get happy, but this is certainly not why I do this.
